Are you ‘fraid of the dark? You’re like the broken toy That nobody wants [?] don’t look down Nobody wants to come down You have to fall to touch the ground Nobody wants to come Bet my brains I’ve gone insane … Continue reading OPTSotD-Starcrawler

OPTSotD-Of Mice and Men

They look down from their ivory tower At a world they never really knew They light their torches and draw their arrows They’re on the hunt, and tonight the prey is you But I can show you what it’s like What it’s like to be hated What it’s like to be degraded What it’s like to be a target But have skin as thick as steel I’ll show you how to bring chaos I’ll show you how to be dangerous In a world that teaches an eye for an eye I’ll show you how to survive, oh And now you’ve … Continue reading OPTSotD-Of Mice and Men

I brought pain you carried hurt, in hands cupped spilling out as Pacific rain coastal storms shaking tones sighs turn to groaning grown in a garden of neglect metals, of color uncertain. tales spun by passing bard a place of dull sorrows fretting over tomorrows we follow banners, tattered in a requiem, you will fail me I understand why, so I will pull down the sky creating chaotic, deep shade of blues, drowning I understand why still is this, epiphany stark it is, a cry resonant, a meteoric rise untouchable fear that only true loneliness can hear looking through waters … Continue reading metal Colors, Titania pt. 1
